Show Cancelled Due To Inclement Weather

Hey all, XXroads
Unfortunately, due to the weather, tonight’s show at the Crossroads has been postponed. You never want to have to cancel a show, but there comes a time when you have to consider the circumstance. The safety of everyone involved is paramount and the risk is not worth it. We’ll have a new date soon. In the meantime, stay safe. See you all soon.
